The human serological response was analyzed by using sera from patients who were serologically positive but isolation negative for Chlamydia pneumoniae and from patients with proven C. pneumoniae infection based on serology and isolation. To assess whether seroreactivity to C. pneumoniae proteins had potential diagnostic value, the cross-reactivities of these sera to other Chlamydia species and of sera from patients infected with C. trachomatis and C. psittaci to C. pneumoniae proteins were… CONTINUE READING
